I need to find a pair of dress shoes that I can run in.
I have a job assignment coming up that will require me to wear business formal and business casual as my day-to-day attire. However, I have been told that I need to find “dress shoes [I] can run in when needed”. As in, balls out sprinting and running, for distances of up to at least a couple of miles.Any one know of a pair like this?

Pretty upset with Grailed right now

Pretty upset with Grailed right now
I was selling a coat on Grailed.The shipping information stated:”Purchase price adds $7 shipping to US. All other buyers please make an offer to receive a quote.”In other words, I listed it as an item that I would only ship in the U.S, unless a buyer in another country contacted me directly and asked for a shipping quote.A Grailed user who was interested in the coat communicated with me through the messaging system on Grailed, asking for etc pictures etc.He did not tell me he was located in Europe until much later in the conversation.I then explained to him he would have to pay an extra $40 to cover shipping to his country (Netherlands).He kept offering a little bit higher but I kept telling him it was not enough, due to shipping fees. He then bought my item, with only the $7 added for shipping within the U.S. This is nowhere near able to cover the $40 for shipping to the Netherlands.Is this a technical glitch or something? Why are buyers from other countries allowed to buy items listed as U.S. only?Is there any way to “undo” his purchase and refund both parties? This is pretty ridiculous.I have emailed Grailed with this message. I’m also wondering if anyone here has had a similar experience, or has advice for this situation?

Pea coat comparison: J Crew Factory Classic vs. Uniqlo
http://www.uniqlo.com/us/product/men-wool-blended-pea-coat-https://factory.jcrew.com/mens-clothing/jackets_outerwear/outerwear/PRDOVR~A8943/A8943.jsp?color_name=charcoalI ordered both recently and told some folks I’d post my thoughts, so here they come. The J Crew Classic was $115 on sale and the Uniqlo was $99. Here’s pics of them in real life:J Crew Factory UniqloI really wanted to go with charcoal and the JCF coat is a really nice color. Even at a bit of a distance, it doesn’t look black. The ten-button design is cool, and, non-traditionally, it has both slash and flap pockets. I find this a nice touch, however the slash pockets are a bit high for my taste.Here’s where I kind of run out of nice things to say. The collar is kind of small and rather anemic- it doesn’t really stand up on its own when popped. This is a HUGE dealbreaker for a pea coat as far as I am concerned. Worn, it sits a little “lumpily” too, with some odd wrinkles in places. It just doesn’t feel that well-made. I am returning the JCF coat.While the Uniqlo coat lacks the heft of a “real” one, it feels better made of the two. The lines are clean, all design elements are pretty classic, and the collar, while not thick, is stiff enough to perform as expected. (huh huh…)I decided I really don’t want navy, and I already have a black overcoat and don’t want another black coat. So, I am returning the Uniqlo coat as well, but only because of that. If it came in charcoal or dark gray I’d be quite pleased with it for a $100 coat. I can definitely tell it’s not super-warm, but I think it’s be ok with some layering, and it’s an attractive pea coat.

Simple Questions – November 30
This thread is for simple style questions that don’t warrant their own thread (although we strongly suggest checking the sidebar and the wiki before posting!). Fit checks and “How’d I do” questions are a great use of this thread (although they can also go in the daily Outfit Feedback & Fit Check thread). Other example questions:Could someone take the chest measurement for a small J.Crew oxford?Is there a place with full measurements for Naked & Famous jeans?What slim-fitting green cords do you recommend?Where do I find a military surplus peacoat online?Important: Downvotes are strongly discouraged in this thread.
